American Glass Now: 2017 at the Washington National Cathedral

On Saturday, June 17th, I visited the American Glass Guild's exhibit titled, American Glass Now: 2017 held at the Washington National Cathedral. I attended with my husband and a long-time friend who is a fellow glass enthusiast. 

I haven't created many fused glass pieces in the last couple years, so I was surprised to learn how popular painted glass currently is in the American Glass Guild.  Several pieces were painted glass and few combined fused glass and painted glass techniques. The assortment of pieces both in subject and technique were fun to see.

Of course the National Cathedral is a place of wonder as well. Wonderfully carved limestone, flying buttresses, and gothic spires galore. We also strolled through the Bishop's Garden to round out the day.

This exhibit runs through September 8, 2017.

The artists with work on display include: Alice Johnson, Troy Moody, Kathy Barnard, Linda Lichtman, Nancy Nicholson, Tim Carey, Ellen Mandelbam, Richard Prigg, Marie Foucalt-Phipps, Staphane Ruault, Mary Clerkin Higgins, Sean Merchant, and Amy Valuck.
